    Change in CFP

    Hi,

    It seems that SGU has raised the admissions standards for those enrolled in the Charter Foundation Program. Now, to be able to matriculate into the med school the student has to achieve a gpa of 3.50 or higher, no longer the 3.20 or higher as it was for previous CFP students.

    I have to say, that although I am a bit nervous about this, it also kind of makes me proud to be entering SGU CFP. In talking with an admissions counselor a few weeks ago, I was advised not to consider the CFP as a "pre-admissions" course, or "bostbacc" or "pre-anything," but to consider it as medical school. This really inspires me and lets me think, at least in my own mind, that I'll be a "medical student" in August. Of course, I won't have the privilege of actually matriculating and joining the ranks until January, but it's quite motivating (and sobering) to realize that I will be held to high standards, not just starting in M1, but in CFP. I'm thankful for this opportunity to prove myself, and am glad that SGU really prepares it's students to be exceptional physicians.

    Just my thoughts.

    i was granted an interview--emailed the doc i'm supposed to meet with (three times) and he still hasn't gotten back to me (its been a whole week already). SGU seems to be sporadic with its timing, they are very prompt with responses sometimes and other times they disappear into Narnia.

    but wait..you said you interviewed for CFP around april 13th?...isn't that like...in the future?!?!?

    im sure he appreciates you emailing him 3 times in a week... that'll make a good impression... its not like hes busy or anything.

    Actually, I emailed him twice--when I called enrollment saying I had trouble getting into contact with my interviewer, they sent him the third email because "....thats very strange...he usually is very prompt with responses, this shouldn't be happening...."

    but thanks for your input.

    CFP loan and deposit

    Anyone, who has been offered an admission, what is the loan situation? Also, how much is the deposit? Thanks in advance for replying.

    The reason they did the changes is that half the CFP class decel'd after getting to 1st term. If you think that's crazy, there are people from CFP that decided to drop out of med school even before taking any exam in 1st term and they PASSED CFP. No matter how hard CFP prepares you, trust me, 1st term > 10x CFP. I got a 4.0 in CFP, but 1st term was killer. I went to the gym everyday, partied, and procrastinated in CFP. I'm did no gym, no partying, no procastination in 1st term and I still didn't get >3.5. The biggest mistake you can make is thinking that CFP is a representation of actual med school.

    This is just a flat out lie. We had maybe 4-5 people who decelled in Term 1, from the original 70+ Jan 2010 CFP.

    1 person left before taking any exams.

    Does this mean that the premed requirement has been raised to a 3.5 as well?

    i believe it has (don't quote me on that, just check it out)

    i would imagine that it has, because SGU's new 12 month post bacc also requires a 3.5--looks like SGU loves the 3.5 haha.
